Actress Rimi Sen has admitted in an interview that she did ‘Bigg Boss’ for the ‘money’. She was seen on the ninth season of the reality TV show, and was constantly singled out by host Salman Khan for her “lack of interest”.
Rimi revealed that she was paid Rs 2.25 crore for spending about 50 days in the house.
She told SpotboyE, “See we do few things for fame and some for money. So I did Bigg Boss only for money. They paid me around 2.25 crore for 49 days and nobody can earn this much money in such a short time.”
Rimi continued, “Most of the time people fail to understand the actual concept of Bigg Boss. The show is not about fighting and getting highlighted or giving content. This show is about getting your hidden personality out. Har kisi ke andar ek kharab shaks chhupa hua hai so usko bahar lakar vo dikhate hain ki (Everyone has a negative side to their personality, and the show brings that side out) he or she is the real person. And I found the concept very interesting when it got offered to me. They purposely create tasks in a way that your worst side comes out in public and that is something you have to have a hold on yourself.”
Rimi said that she stayed true to herself on the show. “I knew that I have come for money and I have to behave good and go out with a good image which I did. I was quite successful in doing that,” she said.
